Let’s Go In to a Picture Show
Silent Cinema Recordings (1907-1922)
Grammy Award-winning Harbinger Records, a division of The Musical Theater Project, proudly announces a new release, Let’s Go In to a Picture Show, now available to all via download and CD purchase.
Popular songs on the subject of moving pictures were an international phenomenon from about 1900 through the coming of sound in the late 1920s, and constitute a body of work that has yet to be fully documented and examined.
Now, for the first time, these early recordings are saved from obscurity giving us a window into a world long disappeared. These twenty-six recordings feature every variety of instrumentation and feature top bands and vocalists of the era.
Extensive liner notes are written by Ron Magliozzi, Curator, Department of Film, Museum of Modern Art. As an added bonus complete lyrics and background information are included on each song.
